I’m a PhD candidate at the University of Edinburgh and a member of the CDT in Data Science where I’m supervised by Sharon Goldwater and Walid Magdy.

Working with terabytes of Twitter data and historical corpora that can fit on a floppy disk, I investigate how language is used, how it varies between people and how this all changes across time.
